Robot technology in University College Absalon

During the coming years, tomorrow's robot technologies will also become a natural part of the way in which we think education. Robot technologies must be incorporated into the way in which we think education.

Robot technology is one of the very newest items on today's welfare technology agenda. However, version 2.0 of  the digitalisation of Denmark has already been launched. We often hear of robot vacuum cleaners but they constitute only a very small proportion of the robot technologies that are being developed today, and which will gain ground in many areas of the public sector in coming years.

University College Absalon is continuing recent years' dedicated efforts to create a new digital learning culture and new digital teaching styles by focusing on ways in which the newest robot technologies can be applied to the public sector.

In the coming years, University College Absalon will launch and market the new initiatives in close collaboration between the Regional Centre for Educational Services, the Department for Research and Development and the many other teaching environments in elementary and further education in Region Zealand.

We have seen excellent results in, for example, children with autism, and it is quite clear that robot technologies provide many children with a much better understanding of IT and programming and that they greatly stimulate the desire to learn sciences

Partnership with Blue Ocean Robotics

New technological solutions for the welfare sector must be developed in close collaboration between private and public sector organisations. For this reason, Blue Ocean Robotics and University College Absalon have entered into a partnership for the testing, development and application of robot technologies in, for example, schools and hospitals.
